Chateau Musar Rouge Gaston Hochar Bekaa Valley 2014

Description

This 2014 is their classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, and Carignan grown in gravelly soils at high elevations. These elevations temper the otherwise arid Mediterranean climate of the Bekaa Valley. Additionally, some of the vines here date back to the 1930s and all yields are EXTREMELY low. Because conditions were so hot and arid in 2014, harvest was carried out as meticulously as ever before: Musar had four separate teams combing their vines simultaneously! In the winery, the grapes underwent a long, varietal-separate, natural fermentation in concrete vessels for six months before being transferred into French oak barrels for one year. The individual varietal wines were then blended together in 2016 and sent into concrete yet again before an unfined and unfiltered bottling in July of 2017.
